As warming oceans push the range of fisheries further north, new opportunities for Arctic fisheries are emerging. But this opportunity comes with a responsibility to establish ethical, sustainable, and equitable approaches to development.
Join the Migration in Harmony Research Coordination Network for a webinar with Dr. Andreas Østhagen as he shares the research behind his new project, "The Blue Potential on Svalbard: A Hub for Arctic fisheries?’ (SVALFISH). Learn about the ongoing transition on the Svalbard Archipelago, specifically Longyearbyen, now undergoing the transformation from a mining community towards a multi-functional 21st-century Arctic hub, and hear how you can engage with Dr. Østhagen in investigating the potentials and conditions for increased fishery and related activities based on Svalbard, and what this might entail, both for Longyearbyen and for polar fisheries more generally.
